2.   What is the difference between the Drinking Water and Clean Water programs?

Both the Drinking Water and Clean Water programs are State Revolving Funds (SRFs) that provide low-costs or no-cost financing for communities building water quality projects. The Drinking Water SRF provides financing for infrastructure directly related to drinking water supply.  The mission of the Clean Water SRF  is to protect, maintain and improve water quality for all waters of New York State.  The most common type of Clean Water SRF project is the construction or upgrade of a wastewater treatment plant to prevent pollution in our waterways.
